Jules Taylor Marlborough Chardonnay 2017 $23 Its roasted stonefruit and grilled citrus notes on the nose merge like a zip with soft nougat and brulee flavours in the mouth, making it a creamy, silky chardonnay that’ll soothe the throat and clear the nostrils nicely.  Not overtly oaky, and definitely soothing, it’s ballerina-balanced and will easily … Read More

Jules Taylor OTQ Marlborough Chardonnay 2018 $39.99 I feel like I’ve literally been gnawing on my own wrists in anticipation to get my hands on the new OTQ chardonnay from Jules Taylor.
